The mean distance between the center of the Earth and the center of Moon is 3.84x10 to power of 8 M. The moon's orbital period is 27.3 days. Calculate the distance from the Earth to an artificial satellite with an orbital period of 9.1 days.

Since the orbital period of the satellite that we are calculating for is a third of the other satellite since 9.1/27.3 = 1/3, that means that the circumference and radius of the circle are going to be 1/3 of the other satellite's statistics.1/3 of 384000000m = 128000000m
